The MOFO is a little heavier then the DW with the stainless insert
I think it is a difference of less then 1oz but you do notice it side by side
my buddy that has the DW and used it on an '07 ego didn't like the lack of weight on that marker and now runs a heavier barrel to keep the gun more "stable" during high rates of fire

Well to lower the weight (I know those PPS barrels are HEAVY!) and you want a good kit; Go with the Sly Dual Carbon Kit, Hammerhead MOFO or the Deadlywinds with Stainless Freak inserts (I prefer the finish on stainless over aluminum)
If your field is the same as ours and the paint stays in the same area and get away with one barrel size, save yourself some money and get a Stiffi in the size that the paint usually is.

a tube is a tube. and a kit is pretty much worthless cause there is no reason to not having just a tiny barrel.

but as far as carbon barrels go, call stiffi and get a .679 stiffi classic. nice long control bore, lots of porting, super light.

that would be a legendary barrel.

If it's just a tube gordo then why does the size matter? And what would make it so legendary if it's just a tube?
Sometimes you post just to be arbitrary and read your own words I think.

Two words. Giant paint. Last year, my friend bought a case of WPN Elixir paint, it was massive and kept breaking in his .687 freak barrel. I had to loan him my .695 insert(underbored) so he could play. Does this happen a lot? No. Did having a barrel kit prevent a completely f-ed day of paint breaks. Definitely yes.


BTW, I've been battleswabbing my stiffi since I got it in 04-05. I've been doing it intentionally to try and ruin it. Still good.

for accuracy a tube is a tube. for accuracy, a barrel is a barrel.

however, a barrel can give you advantages other places. such as consistency and efficiency, in which case a small bore will improve both of those things massively.

the choice between a 1 and 2 peice is a trade off between consistency and efficiency, however, if there was a properly designed 2 bore (not necessarily 2 piece) with the right length control back was on the market, then that would be better.

in the last 6 years i have not seen a paintball over .685 of any type, in any weather. i have lost hope on using a barrel any larger then .682 all together. pretty much a .679 on everything all the time kinda guy.

I don't know where your playing, but I have been at a number of events this season with balls ranging from .686 to .693 and as small as .679

I use my DW on all my cockers and my Fusion.. If I had to pick one thing to keep out of all my gear I would keep my DW, no questions about it.
